According to detectives, a Garden City Police Department detective was on an assigned burglary patrol when he observed two males walking northbound on Clinton Road into Garden City. The two males then proceeded onto Locust Street stopping in front of several houses looking down the driveways. The subjects then walked into a front yard of a home on Locust Street and tried to gain entry through a window. Additional units arrived and were able to place under arrest Mario Morales, 19, of 380 Front Street and William Nieto, 17, of 142 Henry Street.
The defendants are being charged with Attempted Burglary 2nd Degree and will be arraigned on July 23, 2014 at First District Court, Hempstead.
